Fall 2012 Semester at Sea Voyage. Day 40: Back Home in New Jersey.
It was a long trip home. Then I had to transfer all of the images I took on the voyage to my server, make backup copies, and load the images into my Lightroom database. It has been six years, and I still have images to review and process.
Returning Home. Semester at Sea, Fall Semester Voyage. Day 39: Flights from Casablanca to Frankfurt and then Frankfurt to Newark.
A very long day of waiting and flying and waiting and flying. Extra questions by US security folks in Frankfurt asking why I only spent a night in Casablanca, Morocco. They wanted to see all the pictures I took on the Semester at Sea, Fall Semester Voyage. I had ~40K images on several USB drives. Finally, they got bored and let me catch the flight back to the US.
Gone to see Europe. Semester at Sea. Fall 2012 Semester Voyage on the MV Explorer. Day 28: Sintra, Portugal.
I joined a field trip to see the Pena National Palace and Castle in Sintra. The Pena Palace is on the top of a hill overlooking Sintra. The following panorama shows the palace. Is was really intrigued by the sculpture above the entrance “Allegoric Gate to the creation of the World” or “Arch of the Triton.” It appears to be King Neptune sitting in a giant clam shell looking down.

Gone to see Europe. Semester at Sea. Fall 2012 Semester Voyage on the MV Explorer. Day 31: Bullfighting Match in Seville.
I was hiding behind the lens when I took this picture because I didn’t want to watch. Image taken with a Nikon D800 camera and 70-300 mm lens (ISO 400, 122 mm, f/5.6, 1/1500 sec). In the end, all three bulls died.
